Merry Christmas from republican representative Thomas Massie.
I'm also kind of bonus-appalled that a lot of those are fully-automatic weapons which have literally no purpose but murdering humans, like not even arguably, and he thinks that's jolly fun-time. I can't really think of any society in history quite as broken-minded about weapons as the US.
It's being treated as a potential hate crime, with a "manifesto" having been published online prior to the event. Oh, and it was streamed live on Twitch, because of course it bloody was.
Can we talk about gun control yet, conservative America? No? Oh, I see! It's too soon. When will it *not* be too soon? Ah, of course - when it's too late.
Boy, I hope all you "pro-life", anti-choice assholes who're so chuffed with the Supreme Court declaring war on a woman's right to control her own body are gonna jump on this one. You will jump on it, right? 'Cause you're so PRO-LIFE? So a mass shooting event that leaves 10 people dead must conflict with how sacred you think human life is? Oh, right - the Second Amendment is more important. And most of the people killed were black, with which you're usually fine anyway.
I don't mean to sound cold, or bitter, or cruel... but I am, so that's how it comes out.
Unfortunately a security guard shot at the suspect but as he was wearing armor it wasn't effective. The suspect then shoots the guard who dies. It was always ridiculous for Republicans to propose "Only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" but here is proof.
There is absolutely no gun manufacturer who is gutted when a mass shooting takes place. It's a win-win for them. The name of the shooter and gun gets plastered everywhere, which shows that their guns are effective at killing. People get petrified so buy guns to protect themselves. The manufacturer gets to say "mass shootings are bad", while knowing that the US will never, ever enact gun control laws.
The police in the US came into being to catch runway slaves. That’s the origin of policing in this country
Anyone expecting a different outcome from the one where black people with a dodgy license plate get a gun placed into the back of their head and the trigger pulled versus a white teenager who just murdered ten people getting asked to please not kill himself and come out for a hug is delusional
hedben: I forgot about the shoutbox, I never see it on mobile! Makes sense that it might still work, the profile pages are working too. Issue seems limited to actual thread pages
